Statement of Ambassador Eric Goosby on the Appointment of Gabriel Jaramillo as the new General Manager of the Global Fund to Fight AIDS, Tuberculosis and Malaria


January 24, 2012

The appointment of a new General Manager demonstrates the commitment of the Global Fund to implement its aggressive reform agenda as urged by the United States. Gabriel Jaramillo possesses all of the qualities that the Global Fund needs in a General Manager. His strong management and financial background, coupled with his experience in tackling global health issues as a key advisor to the UN Special Envoy for Malaria, make him an outstanding choice.

Furthermore, Jaramillo is committed to moving forward with the Global Fund’s reform agenda, having served on the High-Level Independent Review Panel that evaluated the Global Fund’s financial oversight systems. The Global Fund now needs to move quickly to continue to implement these reforms

We look forward to working with Gabriel Jaramillo as he endeavors to strengthen the Global Fund so it can continue to do the important work of improving and saving lives. We also thank Michel Kazatchkine for his years of service to the Global Fund. There is no doubting his compassion as a physician and scientist and his deep commitment to the Global Fund’s mission of improving the lives of those affected by AIDS, malaria and tuberculosis.
